AUCKLAND, New Zealand, Jan. 2 (Xinhua) -- A New Year online concert, organized by a New Zealand based cultural exchange organization, was showcased on Saturday by youth to celebrate the Chinese culture.
The New Year online concert was part of the ongoing online charity concert series participated by young performers from across the world.
Its organizer, the Culture Bridge, said that the New Year concert was aimed to celebrate and promote the Chinese culture globally.
"The livelihood and creativity of our overseas Chinese rooted from Chinese culture, for which we bear the responsibility to preserve and promote," said Jie Min, director of the Culture Bridge.
Young performers in the New Year online concert came from New Zealand, the United States, Australia, Canada and Thailand. While most of the performers are overseas Chinese, there were also local fellows joining the concert to show their talent in Chinese songs.
The two-hour New Year concert featured some famous and classic Chinese songs and performances such as the Wushu performance, Colourful Clouds Chasing the Moon, and Me and My Motherland.
The first concert session of the online charity concert series organised by the Culture Bridge debuted in early 2020 during the COVID-19 lockdown when a group of overseas Chinese students joined a global rally to sing for COVID-19 frontline health workers. The online concerts have since been joined by over 2,000 young performers globally, according to its organizer. The New Year concert was the ninth session of the online charity concert series. Enditem
